Try the cannelloni – pasta tubes filled with spinach and ricotta cheese in a creamy tomato and béchamel sauce. For something a little meatier, the filleto di maiale is a  great choice; tender pork fillet, pan fried and served in a creamy sauce with mustard, white wine, leek and mushrooms. Fish lovers should not miss the sea bass which is cooked to absolute perfection, oven baked with lemon and dill on a bed of spinach.
